Kinda good, kinda sloppy, kinda aggressively loud (not in terms of volume, but performance), and with that brittle, glassy brightness their 71-72 sound system was guilty of. The trouble with some GD tapes is they're TOO good quality: you really need the warmth of tape decay to make some of these shows listenable in your living room. That's because the Dead's sound people were trying too hard to make everything as clean as possible. There's a reason that sound never ended up taking with other bands: it hurts your head!

Subject: uneven mix
Is it me, or is Bobby's gtr really high in the mix? Big River, you can barely hear Keith's piano solo, or Jerry picking away, but you can sure hear Bobby's rhythm!

Subject: lousy, stinking master-reel cut...
i absolutely ADORE the china cat-/> rider from this show, and would dare say it's one of the best ever performed; if only the master reel didn't have that oh-so-short cut in the rider... great transfer, scott!

#############_"Smokin' GRATEFUL DEAD Show"


Hi-Fi Stereo, Excellent Mix. (of the two shows listed on the IA for this date, I prefer the sound of this version)

23 wonderful performances of songs from the 72 set list. Here's the GRATEFUL DEAD with their "new" set, sound, and equipment. Things changed quite a bit between April 71 and September 72.

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1972 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it NOW or you'll be sorry.

Eat, Drink, be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the Love.

PS: The IA recommends RealPlayer for streaming and downloading.
